  • Do I need a Delete Personal Information document?

    If you would like websites to delete your personal information or have privacy concerns, then you will need a Delete Personal Information document. Before getting started, it is useful to know the name and contact information of each organization that will receive this form.

  • What is the CCPA?

    Under the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA), residents of California are able to contact companies to delete their personal data unless it meets one of the following exemptions: completing the transaction that the data was collected for, security incidents, free speech, engaging in research, and complying with any legal obligations. Only companies that meet one of the following requirements have to comply with deletion requests:

    • Gross annual revenue of $25 million or more
    • Business annually buys, receives, sells, or shares the personal information of 50,000 or more consumers, households, or devices
    • Business derives 50% or more of its annual revenues from selling consumers' personal information

    Note: Only residents in California are entitled to protections under the California Consumer Protection Act. A California resident is a natural person (not a corporation or other business entity) who lives in California. The CCPA is still applicable if they are temporarily out of state.

  • How do I remove my personal information from the Internet for free?
